Spanish term or phrase:programas de difusión
Does anyone with experience in Colombia know if "difusión" in the following refers to actual radio/TV broadcasting, or is it more general?--
"Colombia ha jugado igualmente un papel importante en la ratificación del Tratado para la Prohibición de Minas a través de diferentes programas de difusión sobre el problema de las minas terrestres y la implementación de programas de prevención."
Explanation: I guess that's what is meant actually. The origin of the word is clear - from the English 'fuse' as in mine-actuating device.
See for instance
Convention on the prohibition of the use, stockpiling, ...
strenuously towards the promotion of its ... stockpiled
anti-personnel mines. 6. Each ... national demining program to determine ... www.unog.ch/frames/disarm/distreat/ottawa.htm
... and many others.

Explanation: Yes, I would definitely go for "broadcasting media" to translate your "programas de difusión" term. Besides TV and radio, it also includes written publications in newspapers, magazines, etc.
